Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Westbourne Grove - Westbourne Park Road
3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, charming design in a handy West London location
With upscale eateries and delis on your doorstep, and some of London’s most-loved milieus a short walk away, village-like Westbourne Park offers the best of both worlds, just minutes from the city. Notting Hill and Portobello Road are a picturesque, ten minute saunter up the road, as is the stunningly affluent, canal-lined Warwick Avenue. So after flirting with the flaneur in you, retire to Westbourne Park Road, a spacious Victorian, three bedroom, three bathroom townhouse with a knowingly designed interior. Let the children loose on the fanciful array of toys, while you explore the master suite, with its stunning glass-panelled wet room on a bespoke stone stage.
Your hosts are a former fashion magazine stylist turned interior designer, and her lawyer husband. His exacting eye and her fashion heritage make their home an epitome of restrained style, whimsical flourishes here and there, meanwhile, conjure the patter of their children’s tiny feet.
Eye for detail
Step inside this beautiful family home and over the threshold of the open plan sitting room and study. Tread the pale wood floorboards and admire the elegant lounge area at one end, with its crisp, white sofa, space-age lamp, and splashes of coloured furnishings. At the other end, enjoy the vast bookcase of literature and garden-facing study area. Downstairs, the spot-lit, basement kitchen is bright, and entirely immaculate, with lots of storage space to keep appliances away from little hands, and a bench dining table for social mealtimes. A large, sumptuous pink sofa in front of the bay window is ideal for relaxing with a glass of wine after a long, leisurely supper. After dinner, retire to the first double, with its upholstered bedstead, or tuck up the little ones in the adorable triple kids’ room, where they can shirk sleep and paw through the complete Mr Men collection or daydream at the dolls’ house. The family bathroom is just across the hall, and boasts a roll top bath and heated towel rack. Finally, discover the enormous master bedroom, with its graphite colour scheme, and indulgently large ensuite bathroom.
Fitting the bill
Westbourne Park is an adults’ playground and a child’s one, too. Here, excellent restaurants and gastropubs abound and there’s boutique shopping to be enjoyed in Westbourne Grove. The beautiful Kensington Park Gardens are nearby, as is London’s finest museum and art gallery district. Central London is just 20 minutes away by tube.
